You may be experiencing particular difficulties right now, in yourself or with others, or you may have a general sense of something being not
right. You want things to shift. As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist in the City of London (EC4), I offer safe and confidential support to work with you in this process. You will have space to explore your difficulties and we will work together to understand what is troubling you and how you can move forward.
My approach is integrative relational. I draw on evidence based therapeutic principles according to your needs, to help you move towards a more integrated, fulfilled way of living.
Originally from Germany, I have lived in the UK and previously the United States for a total of more than 15 years. After obtaining my PhD in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and focussing on academic and private sector research and consultancy, I decided to follow my dream and become a counsellor.
I trained at the Metanoia Institute, one of the leading training institutions for integrative psychotherapy. I have gained experience in time sensitive therapy working for the NHS (at SLaM) and for Trinity Laban. I expanded my counselling experience by becoming a qualified teacher in the Alexander Technique, an embodied learning process with particular relevance to trauma treatment.
I have extensive research and consulting experience in the academic, private and charity sectors, including at the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU)/ Anna Freud Centre and King’s College London.

My therapeutic approach integrates principles from several therapeutic backgrounds to best suit each client’s needs.
Psychotherapy support can be life changing in the short and long term. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you more freely choose behaviour and effect change in your life right now, before accruing years of therapy.
I have a strong awareness of the role of trauma, including
micro-traumatic events, in shaping dysfunctional patterns in life, work,
and relationships. Therapy does not need to unearth all details of the trauma to be healing. It does offer space to talk about aspects of your experience you cannot share with anyone else.
Therapy is a two-person endeavour, so from the first session I will help you discover and more fully tap into your own existing resources.
